Runfola Relatives from Alia

Postby srumfola » 25 Apr 2012, 04:37

I'm trying to find information about my great grandparents from Alia. The only info that I have is the Birth Certificate of my grandfather, Vincenzo Runfola (later went by Charles Rumfola) born Feb 13, 1915 in Napoleonville, LA, to:

Francesco Runfola age 25 from Alia, P, S, Italy
Santa (Lamendola) Runfola age 22 from Alia, P, S, Italy.

The whole family moved to Clearfield, PA and went by the last name of Rumfola.

Any help would be so much appreciated.

You all sure did help! I am interested in the information from Alia. That is an amazing find - the 1910 Census info. I was really looking for that and I believe you got it! I can't believe you found it with those names mispelled. I will check on the great great grandmother. I'm not seeing the connection with Francesco (Frank). Thank you so much!

Hi!
I'm guessing Cosima DiMarco's name was also mis-spelled on the 1910 census :wink:
